The Rev. John F. Stanton (Fr. Jack)
Originally from the Diocese of Newark in New Jersey, Fr. Jack has served in the Diocese of Southeast Florida as Interim Rector at St. James the Fisherman Church in Islamorada (in the Keys) and Priest Associate at Trinity Cathedral in Miami where he helped to start a Spanish language service and assisted with celebrating and preaching at the English language services. He is a member of the Steering Committee for the Nehemiah Process in our diocese – a program to assist local churches in growth by sharing the Gospel of Jesus to all people.
Fr. Jack received the degrees of Master of Divinity from the General Theological Seminary in New York City and MBA in Health Services Administration from Wagner College on Staten Island. He ‘loves’ to teach the Bible. His first Bible class at the Church of the Epiphany is ‘Bible Fundamentals Without Being A Fundamentalist’ – an introduction to the way our knowledge of God grew over centuries as the Bible was written and understood. He is especially happy with the Episcopal Church where all are welcome and where ‘no one needs to leave their brain at the door when they enter a church.’
With a strong belief in the healing presence of God in our lives, Fr. Jack is with us as pastor and priest to share in God’s work at the Church of the Epiphany. He and his wife, Nora, have children and grandchildren in South Florida, Boston and Honduras.
